Examples

When multiplying decimal numbers, you adjust the decimal number by multiplying it by 10 or 100 to convert it into a whole number. Then you carry out the multiplication.  Finally you re-adjust  your answer by dividing by 10 or 100 to convert them back into decimals.

7.35 × 31

Multiply 7.35 by 100 to get 735.

Divide this by 100 to get the answer 227.85

Multiply 2.7 by 10 to get 27 and 41.2 by 10 get 412

Work out 27 x 412 = 11124
